it up. bob, i would like your opinion on this. the ncaa, they initially stood with michael bloomberg when he announced the new york soda ban but now they joined lawsuit against the city. big soft drink companies, got naacp to stand with them, in the lawsuit, saying that the ban is racist. >> bob: here is the problem, with naacp. they receive a lot of money from soft drink industry for other things they are doing and the programs that were funded. king and spalding is doing it pro bono for naacp. they should step back and let somebody else take it who does not have a direct conflict with the soft drink industry. >> eric: why does the naacp get money from soft drink industry? >> bob: coca-cola gives enormous money for research. >> dana: research and also they run fitness programs, after-school programs in urban centers. >> andrea: this law isn't racist. it's stupid. this is one of the dumbest thing that bloomberg has ever done. i like to see the groups going after each other. the dem on dem violence is fun to watch. but this law is just dumb. period. i mean, it's one of block block's i
that was trying to do anything was michael bloomberg. i don't see president obama doing very much. we had another incident at aurora, colorado, where he did nothing. mitt romney did nothing. it's a ridiculous argument. how can we possibly have assault weapons and why do we need guns? we don't need guns. we have 10,000 murders a year, as you tried to tell that big, fat idiot last night, how many murders were there by gun in england? what, 33? it's pathetic, but i don't see any change. >> gloria, it's a debate that is very hard to have without people getting very angry and very exercised. how do we try to move forward to a point of some consensus, where the gun lobby are persuaded that these ar-15, military-type machine guns, what they really are, are not a part of this debate in any way? >> well, i think, piers, it begins with a discussion in the court of public opinion. and i want to commend you for standing up what i think was bullying, big-time, last night, by alex jones. if politicians had a spine, the way you had last night, and stood up to the gun lobby and to those who are very, very extrem
would argue that someone like michael bloomberg, who is totally in favor of gun control, very strong on it, and could actually write the checks and do this, if he did it, counter the nra m nra's money, i'm not sure it would make a difference because it has to come from the country as a whole. there has to be leadership at the top, and also in the red states where democrats are running, they're scared. it can't all come from the mayor and governor of new york, from dianne feinstein who is california. it's going to have to come from the rest of the abocountry. >> when you see 2,200 guns can remain legal in the proposal, that's not enough? >> it's never enough. there's no logic to it. it's a credo and it's going to take, i feel, i feel as strongly as you do, but it's going to take a long time to marshal that leadership, marshal that ground roots support for it. as you can see from the two young women you had on the air tonight, young people are poised to embrace this as old people. >> i agree. quick question on hillary clinton, how do you think she fared after the benghazi interview? >>
effective leader than the namesake of this school, john hopkins graduate michael bloomberg. [applause] mayor bloomberg conveined the first subject -- with the agenda -- to crack down on legal guns with every tool at their disposal. he concluded, if congress won't take the lead, we have to, and he has. in the seven years since, he's made the removal of such weapons in new york his focus. with 800 municipal leaders of all stripes and nearly a million folloerwers and he is focused on the reasonable restrictions to make the greatest difference for public safety. the mayor may comprise a source for my optimism. in public health issue after issue he has shown courage, stamina, and innovation for life-saving policy changes. his commitment is absolute. i would not want to find myself on the opposite side of an issue to which he has placed his skills. he will speak in a moment. but first i would like to welcome to the podium, governor martin o'malley. a former mayor of this great city and supporter of john hopkins and smart, data-driven efforts. violent crime has fallen 24% since he was elected in 20
of new york city mayor michael bloomberg have often had provisions and then for gun registration and many other violations of the civil liberties of law-abiding persons such as allowing gun bans for people accused but acquitted of drug crimes. universal background checks should be available. it was a wise move by president obama in his january 16 press conference to begin changes in federal drug -- regulations to allow the private sellers to access the background check system viq licensed firearm dealers. many people would take advantage of that and i commend them but mandating universal checks can only be enforceable if there is universal gun registration and we know that universal gun registration in every country in the world where it has existed has been a serious peril to gun ownership. universal gun registration was imposed by canada in 1995 and was later repealed in 2012 by the canadian parliament because it was such a fiasco. if we want to save lives right now, there is only one thing that will stop the next copycat killer in the lawful armed self- defense and the schools not only
